A wonderful two years' trip at full pay but only men with imagination can take it! ABOUT one man in ten will be appealed to by this page. The other nine will be hard workers, earnest, ambitious in their way, but to them a coupons is a coupon; a book is a book; a course is a course. The one man in ten has imagination. And imagination rules the world. Let us put it this way. An automobile is at your door; you are invited to pack your bag and . step in. You will travel by lim ited train to New York. You will go directly to the office of the president of one of the big gest banks. You will spend hours with him, and with other bank presidents. Each one will take you per sonally thru his institution. He will explain clearly the opera tions of his bank; he will an swer any question that comes to your mind. In intimate personal , conversation he will tell you what he has learned from his own experience. He will give you at first hand the things you need to know about the financial side of business. You will not leave these bankers until you have a thoro understand ing of our great banking system. When you have finished with them the car will be waiting. It will take you to the offices of men who direct great selling organizations. They will be waiting for you; their time will be at your disposal-all the time you want until you know all you can learn about marketing, selling, and advertising. Again you will travel. You will visit the prin cipal industries of the country. The men who have devoted their lives to production will be your guides thru these plants in Detroit, Cleveland, Chicago, and in every great industrial center. Thru other days the heads of accounting depart ments will guide you. On others, men who have made their mark in office management; on others, traffic experts, and authorities in commercial law and credits. Great economists and teachers and business leaders will be your companions.

Every single day you will be in contact with men whose au thority is proved by incomes of $50oo000, $Ioo,ooo, or even more. Do you think that any man with imagination could spend two years like that without being bigger at the end? Is it humanly possible for a mind to come in contact with the biggest minds in business with out growing more self-reliant, more active, more able? Is it worth a few pennies a day to have such an experience? S Do you wonder that the men who have had it-who have made this two years' journey are holding positions of execu tive responsibility in business everywhere? This wonderful two years' '--.-C 3- trip is what the Alexander Hamilton Institute offers you. Not merely a set of books (tho you do receive a business library which will be a source of guidance and inspiration thruout your business life). Not merely a set of lectures (tho the lectures parallel what is offered in the leading university schools of business). Not merely busi ness problems which you solve, and from which you gain definite practical experience and self confidence. All these-books, lectures, problems, reports, bulletins come to you, but they are not the real Course. The real Course is the experience of the most successful business men in the country. For two years you live with them. In two years you gain what they have had to work out for themselves thru a lifetime of practical effort. Send for This Famous Book If you are the one man in ten to whom this page is directed, there is a book which you will be glad to own. It is called "Forging Ahead in Business." It costs you nothing, yet it is permanently valuable. This book is a wonderful stimulus to men of imagina tion. If you have read this far, and if you are at least 21 years of age, you are one of the men who ought to clip the coupon and receive it with our compliments.
